    Hey Abhishek Dey,

    I want to appreciate you for the time it took you to put this AdNow review post together on your blog site. I started my wordpress site couples of month now, and I’ve been looking for the easiest way to monetize my content because I don’t have much traffic for now.

    Luckily, I came across your resourceful blog when making researches online through Google search engine.

    I immediately took action, registered with AdNow, submitted my site, and within 24hrs I received a message (below) from AdNow.com:

    We are glad to inform you that the website safehabitation.com you have added had successfully passed the moderation process and now you can place widgets on it..

    I was finding it difficult to add the adNow widgets on my wordpress blog so that I can start showing their ads right away…not knowing that you have another blog post that explained the “step-by-step wise guide implementing adnow ads on wordpress”

    …but at last I was able to discovered this post searching for “how to setup and add adnow to my blog Blognife” on Google.com

    I’m indeed grateful to you…(http://blognife.com).

    Are you still using this ad network? I searched and experienced false and scam reviews about this network.

      Hi Edward,

      They are not scam for sure. However, they forfeit the earnings if publishers use fake traffic, clickjacking etc. I wont say that they are one of the best paying native ad networks, but they do pay! You can also consider taking a look at Spoutable
